Summer Squash - Tromboncino


Cucurbita moschata

HEIRLOOM. This squash balloons out at the blossom end and grows loooong necks which curl in fanciful shapes with a slightly sweet flavor. Unlike other summer squash, these vining plants can be trained up a trellis for best quality and to watch them grow! Harvest at 8-18".
